Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

All city bikes?

Have any of you guys heard anything about thee frames before? I never saw them until today but the big block looks like a really nice steel frame. Any input? https://www.allcitycycles.com/bikes/big_block_frameset/

Ive seen a couple. A mechanic at the LBS had one built up as an SS.

I find it helpful sometimes searching frames ive never heard of on velospace. Idk. But yeah. Haven't really heard much about em tho. But I know ive seen quite a few.

They are a great bike, I've ridden it, and their trick frame. AC knows how to design a great bike. Every bit is well thought out and planned to perfection.

Depending on what its built up with $700 could be a fair price. A bargain is something special, a fair price is what you should expect.

I dont have one but a few of my friends do, they're pretty nice bikes. I'd put the dropout in the same category as a steamroller for quality and reliability. Plus they have awesome dropouts.

I am a fan of those dropouts. Going on my long list of replacements for whenever I decide to ditch my conversion.

Why do I need to make up my mind when spending close to a thousand dollars? Just to make you happy? Nah ill pass. Your saying 700s no bargain when you dont even know what kind of parts or wheelset it has on it.

The fact that you feel the need to incessantly consult the internet for advice on what expensive bike to buy displays that you're probably not someone who is ready to be buying an expensive bike.

It'd be nice for you to take our recommendations in to some serious consideration. It seems like you are just using us weekly to consult about your bike dilemma, then a week later you ask a similar question with a completely different genre of bikes. We only have so much forbearance.

Exactly. I do understand that perhaps this is your way of doing some research but like squeegee said, your asking a bunch of questions and not listening to any of the answers. Nobody is saying you need any sort of "license" to buy a nice bike but come on, dude!
